Data for the period 2010-2019 show a positive trend in the estimated final energy consumption in households. The share of households that estimated their energy consumption as low or very low increased by 8 percentage points from 2010 to 2019. From 2011 to 2019, the share of households considering more efficient energy consumption also increased. The indicator also shows a significant potential for reductions in final energy consumption in households – less than three quarters of households estimated energy consumption in their home in 2019 as moderate, or high to very high.

Neutral

The declarative attitude of Slovenian households towards the environment and efficient energy use is changing positively, while the relationship between the ecological awareness and unawareness of households remains unchanged. There is a considerable potential for reducing final energy consumption in households through the development of environmentally-oriented behaviour, or through positive practice in the use of energy.

Bad

In 2019, over three quarters of households surveyed in Slovenia considered climate change a very serious problem. Between 2008 and 2019, the share of these households in Slovenia decreased by 13 percentage points. There has also been a negative trend in agreeing with statements, such as "Human activity contributes most to climate change" or "Climate action must be taken immediately". According to the surveyed households, the major source of the greenhouse gases in Slovenia are industry and transport.

Good

Results of the REUS 2019 survey show that the car represents the main mode of transportation both in people's city of residence and outside the city. The share of surveyed households that walk or cycle in addition to driving a car and using public transport increased significantly compared to the period 2010–2017. Choice of transport does not depend on the time of year. During the summer season, the bicycle is an additional mode of transport to work for just under one-third of respondents.

Neutral

The survey results show that between 2010 and 2019, the share of households considering the purchase of an electric or a hybrid passenger car statistically significantly increased. Statistical data for registered vehicles shows that, during 2014-2019, the share of new registered electric and hybrid passenger cars slightly increased. In comparison to 20 European countries Slovenia ranks in the middle.

Neutral

Large majority of registered cars still use conventional fuels (petrol and diesel). Although the total share of all alternative propulsion vehicles increased slightly from 2014 to 2019, it remains statistically insignificant.

Neutral

The European Community has met its commitments under the first period of the Kyoto Protocol, as total emissions (excluding the sinks) in the period 2008-2012 were around 19% lower than in the base year.  By imposing the maximum level of allowed sinks, Slovenia has exceeded the 2012 target by about 3%.

In 2018, Slovenian GHG emissions increased by 0.8% compared to 2017. Therefore, Slovenia is on a good track to achieve the EU goal, as non-ETS GHG emissions in 2018 were about 10% below the allocated emissions for 2017.

Bad

Temperature in Slovenia increases faster than global average. Increase in the annual average temperature is most evident in last three decades. Warming of atmosphere will continue according to the climate change projections. The result of warming is an increase in sea level (due to melting of glaciers), increase in level of the greenhouse gases in atmosphere (contributes to warming), and many extreme weather and climate events (like floods, droughts, hail and heavy wind), what will result in the quality of our lives.
